EDB and ErgoGroup have decided on the future organisational structure for the merged company.
The companies have also nominated a new executive management team that will formally come into operation once the merged company has been approved by the competition authorities. This represents an important step in the task of establishing a powerful company that will make its mark on the Nordic IT market.
Following the announcement on 7 June 2010 of the merger between EDB and ErgoGroup, the management teams at both companies have been involved in the task of establishing a clear strategy and a new organisational structure to ensure that the merged company achieves its strategic objectives at the same time as realising the synergies that have been communicated.
"We have now established a powerful and market-oriented organisational structure with highly skilled employees. Our shared objective is to deliver innovative and competitive IT services for the benefit of our customers. Through focused business areas with clear profit responsibility, we intend to develop EDB ErgoGroup into a leading Nordic player that will create value for its customers, employees and owners", comments Terje Mjøs, who will be the CEO of EDB ErgoGroup.
